UAE's Metito wins $1.3 million sewage contract in Equatorial Guinea
Metito, a United Arab Emirates (UAE)-based wastewater and desalination treatment company, has won a $1.3 million contract to set up sewage treatment and water filtration plants in Equatorial Guinea in West Africa.
The Alba Phase III project, being undertaken on behalf of US-based Overseas Bechtel, is located on the Bioko Island in Equatorial Guinea, for use by the Marathon Oil Company. The project is the first that Metito has undertaken in the country.
The scope of the work on the project includes the installation of a 225,000 gallon-per-day (GPD) sanitary wastewater treatment plant in three streams. The plant, which will encompass a Sludge Dewatering System, will use an extended aeration process for the biological treatment of wastewater and a centrifuge for dewatering excess sludge.
The water filtration plant, to be set up in two streams, will use multimedia filtration with chemical dosing for effective coagulation. The plant will generate 445,000 gallons of purified water every day for the construction camp.
Metito uses Reverse Osmosis technology for the production of high purity water used in a wide range of applications. The company currently operates its European, Asian and African operations from its regional headquarters in Sharjah and has a factory and laboratory facility in the Hamriya Free Zone. Work recently started on the company's new global headquarters at Techno Park in Dubai. — (menareport.com)
